The Honda Xblade is 162.71cc sports naked bike, the bike can be used for daily city commutes. The pillion comfort is also good. The 162.71cc, air-cooled, single-cylinder engine puts out 14PS of power at 8500rpm and 13.9Nm of torque at 6000rpm, which is 1.5PS and 1Nm less than the Hornet 160R. The motor is mated to a 5-speed gearbox. As of now, ve haven't encountered any problems regarding the gear shifting or heating. As of now, there is no official update regarding the launch of XBlade BS6. If you are looking for vehicles with discounts, the end of this year would be the best time to buy BS4-era vehicles. As manufacturers gear up towards getting their BS6 products on the road, they will be offering significant discounts on their BS4 counterparts to clear stock. They would try to do so well before the April 2020 deadline to avoid any unsold BS4 stock. So we expect most manufacturers to stop selling BS4 bikes by early 2020. You could go bargain hunting then as the few unsold stocks could attract huge discounts. The reason to go for a BS6 vehicle despite the increased costs would be the added features. Moreover, you can have a test ride of the bike for a better idea of comfort and ride quality by visiting the nearest dealer in your city.

I own X-Blade since June 2018. It is good in view of mileage. But it appears to me lacking in power in comparison to Bajaj Pulsar 180 or like. I like to go often on long trips. That is why I am not much satisfactory from this bike. I want to change it with more powerful bike like Bajaj Pulsar 200NS instead. There is no complaint in this bike.

What was the onroad price when you purchased xblade std in 2018
I have crossed 15000km still I don't seem any problem and about mileage on high I evaluated mileage of 63kmpl .compared to other company sports bikes xblade is the best choice . It has some maintenance but to achieve something u need to pay something ...right...And trust me braking is superb,suspension is superb,power is superb, just rear tyre is sleepery but it's not that sleepery so u can't control it....,every sports bike have such tyres ....I am myself a mechanic and have experience in this field of 2 yrs and currently working in same but the bike is just unique.....

Nearabout 50 kmpl. Braking performance is fairly good, if used keeping in view safety norms. but not the best. It requires regular & continuous use of the bike...I never used it more than 15000 kms as yet. I would not recommend it it go on a journey for more than 5000kms at a stretch...

It is expected to return the fuel efficiency around 55-60 kmpl (approx). Talking about its stopping power, it feels lacking of ABS. The brakes have decent bite but desperately lack feel. The front disc still managed to convey some kind of feedback but the rear drum just seems wooden and happily locks up under hard braking. This wouldn’t have been a huge concern if Honda had offered ABS, or even CBS, but neither of them are available on the bike, even as an option.
The Honda X-Blade has been glorified with a great seating position with the ergonomics of a proper commuter, the seat is wide, with the cushioning on the softer side, and handlebars are also well set for reach. Moreover, we would suggest you take a test ride of the bike so that you may evaluate the bike on the basis of your outlook toward the ride quality, features and comfort of the bike.Read more:Honda X-Blade: Road Test Review: https://www.zigwheels.com/reviews-advice/reviews/honda-xblade-road-test-review/30180/

Seat doesn't offer adequate cushioning for long rides, everything else is good.
The Honda X-Blade shares its motor with the Hornet 160R. But the 162.71cc, air-cooled, single-cylinder engine puts out 14PS of power at 8500rpm and 13.9Nm of torque at 6000rpm, which is 1.5PS and 1Nm less than the Hornet 160R. The motor is mated to a 5-speed gearbox. The seat is wide, with the cushioning on the softer side. The handlebars are also well set for reach and let you get into a comfortable riding position, though its slightly lower set nature might not appeal to everyone. Even the footpegs are not set too far back, and make for a less aggressive posture. That said, it is not as laid back as the Unicorn, and the same can also be said about the way it rides. The power delivery is good in the low range and lets you get off the line easily. On the highways, it’s most comfortable doing 85kmph at 5500 rpm.

It is not good for longer trips. In the beginning I traveled to Jaipur situated at at distance of about 450 kms from Saharanpur at an average speed of 80 kmph. It runs at a top speed of 115 kmph on highway. After returning from journey, I felt some problem in its engine. I set it right from Authorised show room dealer. Why this so happened with this heavy & reliable bike....is an unanswered question for me.

If you can cruise at 75-80 kmph , then it is a very good bike . I have done 200 kms at this speed with 1 stop and had no problems expect that the seat is a bit on the hard side and after some time it gets a bit uncomfortable . Also the mileage i got was 50-53 kmpl during such rides
Better to buy Honda shine in place of X-Blade bike in view of comfort,convenience and satisfaction. Go for Bajaj bike in stead Honda bike. Never expect that with a bike more than its capacity. It may not be a car or a plane. This is my conclusion after long experience of a series of bikes so far.

You can expect its mileage around 50-55 kmpl which might vary due to the factors like riding style and road conditions.Also Read - Honda X-Blade: Road Test Review https://www.zigwheels.com/reviews-advice/reviews/honda-xblade-road-test-review/30180/ The maintenance cost may differ from one authorized service centre to another.

Actually, X Blade do not need ABS.The reason is size of disc used in front fork.ABS is provided just because of Govt. regulations else X Blade is a perfect without ABS.I used non ABS and ABS versions of X blade.It seems not much difference until I open engine above 100kmph.After 100kmph, ABS is always good.
I am office going person for 5 days in a week. I am 58. So, I use it only 10 kms per day.When I am free from all work & have some leisure & my pocket allows me to go anywhere, I intend to go on long trip. I don't share or lend my vehicle to any other person. I often use third gear or 4th gear on the roads of city on account of safety measures. Otherwise, it runs too fast to carry me to a distant place. But I avoid to do such whimsical act. That is all.
